Editorial – Hey, who are these guys?

The question may or may not have been made famous by Paul Newman and Robert Redford as they portrayed Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid on the run but — “Hey, who are these guys?” — seems to be making a comeback in Poulsbo. While no one is racing through town on horseback with deputies hot on their trail, the question has merit as folks at the Marine Science Center would certainly agree.

The question may or may not have been made famous by Paul Newman and Robert Redford as they portrayed Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid on the run but — “Hey, who are these guys?” — seems to be making a comeback in Poulsbo.

While no one is racing through town on horseback with deputies hot on their trail, the question has merit as folks at the Marine Science Center would certainly agree.

Then again, they might not care.

Eitherway, someone or a few generous folks have given another $20,000 donation to the MSC to help further its wide array of educational programs.

The check was the second of three large contributions this un-named benefactor pledged to the center but he, she or they might not be doing their good deeds without some help from the Kitsap Community Foundation.

So, once again, with the helping hand of the foundation, the learning center has benefited. They might not have a plan for the money yet but as renovation work moves forward, the Marine Science Center’s board shouldn’t have a hard time figuring out monetary holes they can plug and new amenities they can add.

Generosity doesn’t always have a face.

It doesn’t have to.

People who really want to give, really want to share, really want to make a difference don’t need to see their names splashed all over the place. That’s why they ask to remain anonymous.

Even so, like Butch and Sundance, we are curious.
